break load

Hi all,

  1. For the TLP structure,  how to set the break load in the code?
  2. How does the simulation show structural failure or mooring line breakage?

Best regards,

Du Jinhan

Hello Jihan,

its not possible to directly model the failure of a structural part. The constitutive model in QBlade only consideres elastic deformation, but no material yield.

However, you can simulate the failure of a morring (or tension) line at a specific point in time. Check out the Turbine Behavior section in the documentation.
